The boys were VERY excited about running a race!
Sorry about the amount of pics for this one!
We got there 30 minutes before the start of their race, got all 3 bibs and time chips. First time the boys had time chips, they thought that was really cool.
Another cool thing: REAL bathrooms!
|CHIP TIME like Mommy!|
|Here it looks like Jonathan is telling Will "You know I could beat you right?" !|
|See #505? in the middle with a racer top..he was the winner..by a lot, a real pro, comes from a family of runners, great running style and super fast.|
|See #505?...not there! Already gone !|
|Look at his fists!!!|
Time: Jonathan 4:51 and Will 5:06. Winner: 3:14!!!
They were both super happy and they both said "Thank you for signing me up!" :)
My turn next!
This was my 22nd race! I started this racing thing 17 mos ago.
The course was 100% flat. They runners that were there were also VERY fast. I think it was the fastest start I have ever been a part of so far. I felt like I was not moving and I looked at my watch and I was going 8:20! I knew I had to slow down if I wanted a PR and I did. I looked at my watch often, I wanted to make sure I was going fast enough but also not too fast for the first 2 miles, I wanted to finish strong this time.
I felt pretty good first 2 miles. I got a stitch at 2.25 miles and I did my best to ignore it and just keep the pace. For the last mile we could see the Finish Line ahead of us. I tried to ignore it because usually that makes me PANIC.
|Oh Yeah I chicked a few guys! Don't know why my tongue is sticking out!|
A new PR! My best time was 29:52 and today I did 29:29. 7th AG. I am happy.
I finished strong. I ran negative splits and I got a PR.
This was a GOOD DAY!
